The Lagos State Police Command has recently made an arrest some of its personnel who were involved in the alleged extortion of two artistes, David Marvellous and Damilola Oladimeji.

According to reports from the Newzandar Metro, the duo had accused the policemen of alleged extortion and sexual harassment.

The artistes were said to be on their way home on the 28th of July 2023 after buying food when policemen from the Langbasa Police Station allegedly accosted them in their estate at Badore, in the Ajah area of the state.

One of the artiste, Marvellous, alleged that one of the policemen had sexually harassed him, and also slapped him on the face for questioning his actions. He also alleged that the cops released them the following morning after collecting N10,000 for bail.

However, during an interview, Marvellous said that the cops involved had been arrested and the money extorted had been returned to the artistes.

“The PPRO invited us to his office, apologised and explained to us that there were good cops and bad cops. The cops involved were arrested and brought to his office and the PPRO told us that they were going to undergo internal disciplinary action and the N10,000 collected from us was also returned to us,” he said.
